Dorian Blue is a rhapsodic movement inspiring authentic connection, healing transformation, and radical self-love.
Dorian Blue is a visionary storyteller, an evocative interdisciplinary artist, and an unstoppable force of nature.
Based in the District of Columbia, Dorian Blue uses their creative voice as a genderfree African-American artist to uplift marginalized voices, promote radical inclusivity, and inspire others to abandon the status quo. Their storytelling portfolio spans audio-visual documentary work, LGBTQ oral histories, vibrant community photography, gender-affirming portraits, and multimedia art. Dorian Blue is a resident artist with the Omi Collective at the Hydrated Womxn pop-up in Brookland, DC and begins a studio residency with the Angel Rose Artist Collective in February 2020.
Their community partners include the Latino GLBT History Project, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, the Omi Collective, and Black Lives Matter DC.
Since 2017, Dorian Blue has established a vibrant brand of community storytelling that centers authentic connection between individuals, radical inclusivity across communities, and personal empowerment for individuals of all gender identities.
As a community storyteller with a background in racial justice organizing, Dorian Blue uses the mediums of photography, visual art, and written word to liberate individual narratives and facilitate connection.
A dynamic interdisciplinary artist, Dorian Blue’s approach to painting is intuitive, emotional, and experimental. Through expansive brushstrokes, rich color, and a commitment to fluidity, Dorian Blue cultivates a rich conversation across mediums that uplifts transmutation and transformation. Their multimedia artwork can be seen in residence at the Lady Clipper Art Gallery on 1514 U Street NW through February 1, 2020.
In addition to their ongoing work as an interdisciplinary artist, Dorian Blue provides multimedia storytelling and consulting services through their QTPOC-centered storytelling brand, Blueboy LLC.
Dorian Blue's work has been featured in MetroWeekly (2019), WETA Arts (2019), and in multiple exhibitions throughout the DC Metro Area.
